BEN SOLAR REMIX OF SUNNY
That so many musicians, remix DJs and music listeners have found joy in the song “Sunny” is a testament to Bobby’s brilliance. This Ben Solar remix is especially charming in that it utilizes Bobby’s voice in an authoritative and compelling way.
We at SunnytheSong.com are compiling every rendition of “Sunny” in the known universe for our own personal Bobby Hebb archive. Soon we will publish a list of every artist who has recorded Sunny that we are aware of, well over 2,000 renditions.
There are also versions of “Sunny” that producer Joe Viglione has taped, with permission, by a variety of artists, including musicians who worked with Bobby Hebb.
This exciting project is happening as you read this, with this very website under construction, a new SunnytheSong.com website to debut soon.
